I received this in an email today from the Diocese of Mississippi. Please give it some thought. As readers here will know, people from our diocese have already had some great experiences in New Orleans doing similar work. Doing this work will change your life, make a difference for people on the Gulf Coast, and it will positively impact your whole faith community.
Camp Coast Care, a Katrina recovery ministry of Lutheran Episcopal Services in Mississippi, is in continued need for volunteers and work crews throughout the coming months. Our numbers for scheduled crews begin to taper off in early August: we need skilled and unskilled laborers to help continue to rebuilding efforts for so many who were impacted by last summer's storm. There is always something meaningful for anyone and everyone who comes to help.
To learn more about the work that Camp Coast Care is doing, please visit their website at www.campcoastcare.com and also the LESM website at www.lesm.org. Specific information on volunteering is available in the menu at the left side of the CCC website. The minimum age for volunteers housed at CCC is 16. For youth groups or volunteers under the age of 16 please contact Mission-on-the-Bay Camp Coordination Team: John Dreyfus 601-917-0794; Joelle Wright 619-865-8100; Butch Jones 228-860-8777; John Berault e-mail: email@example.com.
